PB Food: Is Peanut Butter A Healthy Snack?

online studies glitter graphics and flash games Shack this!

Okay, yes the real question comes in from a Yahoo! user: Peanut Butter? Is it a healthy snack for someone trying to lose weight? Nutritionist SoySista64 weighs in with an astounding YES! "Peanut butter does have fat in it, but it is monunsaturated fat which is wonderful for your heart. Saturated fat is what you have to watch out for. Peanut butter is great because you need healthy "unsaturated" fat everyday for satiety and for your heart. Just watch your portions. I recomend no more than 1tbsp a day and you can pair it with a slice of whole wheat bread and a banana. Yum!"

And of course I also agree with much of the
discussion on Yahoo! Answers! Peanut butter is a wonderfully filling protein rich option to spread on something like wheat bread or crackers to give you a balanced boost before a workout or other daily tasks remaining. In fact, if you like celery (and I do), the old "kids" snack consisting of peanut butter spread inside celery stalks "PB Logs" is a fabulously crunchy juicy option as well.

Day 73:Peanut Butter & Celery

"Today I have reinstituted an old snack from my younger years. I love peanut butter and celery. I used to eat this all the time. Some people put raisins on this snack as well, but i stick with the two main ingredients. I figure the healthy aspect of the celery will counter balance the unhealthy aspects of the peanut butter. After my first snack that included this delicious pair, I decided that it must be healthy and good for me since it tasted so good. It is common knowledge that foods that tastes sinful, rarely is. It is usually the healthiest. Well this may not be completely true, but after a little digging, I found that the Zone Diet does have several recipes that include peanut butter.

The four recipes I found were for a bacon and apple sandwich that uses peanut butter as the condiment, a piece of toast with peanut butter as the topping, a waffle with peanut butter and apricots as the topping, and a Thai dish that uses peanut butter as a sauce. I had never really thought of two of these uses, but they might be worth a try. Once again the Zone Diet has found a way to include everyone’s favorite foods into the diet."
